My wife Julia ran across this in the most recent issue of Natural Home Magazine. It’s a low-income housing initiative started by Dan and Marsha Phillips in Texas called The Phoenix Commotion. They are taking mostly discarded stuff and building small homes with the people that need them. It sounds like Habitat for Humanity but at a much more grass roots level and the homes are truly affordable.
Here are some examples of the houses they build. Photo credit The Phoenix Commotion. Be sure to watch the video below.
